Former KR Cadre Conducts Christmas Service at New Church

The church in Anlong Veng district is a simple building, not traditional in its architecture and not like many of the ornate structures associated with Christian places of worship.

The inside mirrors the outside, no decorations or embellishments, just a simple wooden cross painted white. The walls are plastered with verses from the Bible and photos of the congregation.

The group consist of mostly children, grandchildren and friends of Im Chaem, a former Khmer Rouge official, who in 2017 was acquitted of a slew of charges, including crimes against humanity.
